A Solution to Global Water Shortages

Fresh, clean water is not only a basic human right, it is a fundamental right of all life.

LAEO’s U.S. headquarters is spearheading projects around the world with the purpose of ensuring that knowledge related to how to locate and access abundant fresh water, even in highly arid areas or those prone to drought, is available for the good of mankind and all life.  The know-how enabling broader access to this natural resource that is so basic to survival must not be controlled by only a few, but must be available to all as a basic right.

LAEO’s longer range plans include forming alliances in water deficient regions to help ecosystems recover and thrive while enabling communities to access clean water to live healthier and economically prosper, alongside regional wildlife.  

Some of our current projects include managing wildlife conservation and Zulu community empowerment programs that involve providing jobs, vocational training and educational programs, as well as expanding water resources on its 35,000 acre conservation reserve in South Africa — the Elephants on our reserves drink a lot of water! 

By establishing a Deep-Seated Water Exploration Alliance we can achieve the purpose of safeguarding and expanding Earth’s water resources and its free access as a fundamental human right and right for all life.

Access to adequate amounts of clean, fresh water is a serious problem in many regions of the planet. Lack of it is the source of wars, health problems, economic strife, famine, and environmental devastation to ecosystems through drought and pollutants. However, contrary to conventional science and prevalent belief, scientific studies in the 1890’s, and again in the 1930’s, showed evidence that clean, fresh water may not be the scarce or finite commodity commonly believed.  In our search for geological studies in this field,  we have found various reports in archives indicating there are in fact alternative sources of fresh water on this planet, and, even in arid desert regions. This information strongly indicates that deep-seated water sources are virtually untapped and data suggests that it may be created continuously deep within the planet, although accessible near the surface.

There is a special methodology for locating and drilling for this type of water, apparently known to only a few. However over 5,000 deep seated water wells have been drilled since the 1890’s, giving credence to this important pursuit. Although it is surprising that these geological scientific principles are not more broadly known, the Lawrence Anthony Earth Organization’s Science and Technology Advisors have formed a sub-committee to carry forth the study of this field and advance broad scale implementations.  While our work in this area is just beginning, our purpose is to ensure this vitally important science is far more known and utilized in order to guarantee clean water is accessible to the world. This is a legacy project of far-reaching magnitude and scope.

Most water conservation programs today focus on managing atmospheric water in the form of surface runoff and ground water, while negligible consideration is given to deep-seated water sources. Pressuring up from deep within the earth through rock fissures, this water is virtually limitless and clean. In the 1960s Stephan Riess, a geologist was one of the key pioneers in this field who independently came across this water source and then went on to prove its existence by locating and successfully drilling wells in arid areas where other hydrology experts asserted no water could possibly be exist. [1]

Drilling for deep-seated water looks similar to drilling for ground water. The main difference in accessing it is that it requires drilling into a geologic fissure or fault to release this type of water that has risen near the surface.

Locating well sites requires special training and experience. There are countless wells that have been functioning for decades all over California and in other countries around the world.

With LAEO’s Science and Tech Advisory Committee’s Clean Water Program we are opening the doors to more productive water resource exploration, development and sourcing in different regions of the world.

LAEO Clean Water Program Advantages

  • Provides excellent quality, clean, unspoiled water
  • Is not subject to pollution or surface radiation
  • Per existing well documentation and historical records, never dries up
  • Unlike groundwater, is not subject to the effects of drought
  • Is far less likely to cause subsidence like groundwater wells
  • Refills depleted groundwater supplies from below in some instances
  • Is plentiful and replenishable
  • Has been utilized to quickly refill dried up lakes and reservoirs
  • Can be used to supplement existing water transport systems like the California aqueducts
